Members of Kakule Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church under Likuni District in Lilongwe have been urged to remain faithful and work for the Lord until Jesus comes.
The remarks were made by the Malawi Union Conference (MUC) Executive Secretary Pastor Innocent Chikomo on November 15, 2020 during a colorful church dedication ceremony.
Reading from Isaiah 61 before cutting off the door ribbon, Chikomo encouraged church members to stay faithful and use resources earned with clean hands towards God's work because when building the church, it is not for the people but for the goodness of the Lord.
“As we are cutting the ribbon, we are breaking Satan’s bonds. This church is now a house of Lord, therefore satan has no power to come and play or destroy Gods house. After cutting the ribbon, we will allow the children of God to enter the church, representing God’s kingdom,” added Chikomo.
He then shared with the congregation the word of God from Exodus 25:8 stressing that it is good to build for the Lord but most importantly, Jesus wants us to prepare our hearts towards salvation.
The Central Malawi Conference (CMC) President Pastor Sukali said they are happy to have another beautiful church in CMC.
He then asked the church members to take care of the building in honour of God's glory since now the building is the property of God Himself through the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
The district Pastor Paul Kamgoma said he was happy to be part of the colorful event.
He also thanked the MUC and CMC delegation for gracing the event.
“I would like to thank Kakule church members for building a beautiful house for the Lord. You have put in your financial and physical support for this church to be as it is today, I pray that God should bless you to continue working for Him,” he added.
Giving a brief history of the church, Senior Elder Soka Chitaya mentioned that the church started in 2003 with six families as a Jesus way and later agreed to buy a place where the church is now.
The church project started in 2008 with membership of 36 and the magnificent church has been built at a total cost of twenty one million, five hundred thousand Kwacha.
Several MUC, CMC officials and other Pastors who once served Kakule Church graced the dedication ceremony.
